    S3 wingmirror paint colour?

    Are the 8P S3 wing mirrors aluminium or painted? If they are painted does anyone know the paint code?

    I think they are plastic, as for paint code, I think it is a finished plastic so not painted.

    Your right, the S3 8P has never had alloys covers. Only the early 8L S3 and S4/S4 cabriolet had the proper alloy ones. Audi don't supply them anymore, they have been superseeded by the plastic ones (obviously due to cost)

    The paint is a ***** to match, good luck!
